Hives were caused by side effects of tabs!!!

Hi
Since March, I've had hives three times, the longest bout lasting 6 weeks. I just wanted to tell you if anyone else has these, that the pramipexole I was on for R.L.S was causing them!!! My Dr tried allsorts of antihistamines and steroids (not nice side effects either!!!) Then thought about taking me off the pramipexole, and it was them!!!! Ive been hive free for nearly 3 weeks now! Thank god. They also seemed to make me snort and snore, which has improved (but i still been diagnosed with sleep apnoea) I'd been on these tablets for around four years. I think possibly that because I'm having my tablets changed a lot lately it maybe interfered with the prami. somehow. It seems a lot of tablets we take, can cause hives, so if you get them repeatedly, it may be worth asking your Dr about looking into changing tabs.
